Today is July 11, and I reached 1000 fitness minutes already! Sheesh. I'm not doing this on purpose. I just love that swimming pool. My skin smells like chlorine all the time now, even after a shower. I'm going to cut my hair short too. I... Read more

Tomorrow is my rest day, which is a good thing, because my body is tired after 600 fitness minutes in 6 days. And I'm all scheduled up, so I would be hard pressed to fit in a workout if I wanted to. I'm volunteering at the genealogical library,... Read more

I reached 500 fitness minutes in 5 days! Woo hoo! Feeling proud! I went swimming for 90 minutes again today. The gym was closed yesterday, which forcibly kept me out of the water. That was probably a good thing, though, let my body rest up... Read more

I am SO happy today. I not only have my dream job at the library, I also get a free gym membership along with it. Today, I went swimming for the first time in years. Water, it has been too long. Let us never part again. I cou... Read more

I am really proud of the sore muscles I have today! Yesterday I did the 30 day shred, 40 minutes Zumba, and walked 2.5 miles. I think it was the 30 day shred that did it- I haven't done that in ages. Today I walked the dog for ten... Read more

Bet that blog title was an attention-grabber, huh? I do not claim to know all the answers. I am still trying to find my way in life, like all of us. But looking at the lives of my family for the past three generations, which I've been doi... Read more

I keep getting really upset and falling off the wagon while working at the grocery store. My last day is Friday. I am calling a time out and going into survival mode until then.... Read more
Overdoing it Much?
Saturday, June 09, 2012      7 comments

This week, I did 565 fitness minutes. I think that might be a personal record. I burned 2600 calories, and my weekly goal is 1120. That's over twice as much. It felt so good to have the time to exercise this much. I haven't had that mu... Read more

Ooooh, I had a bad day yesterday. And mind you, no alcohol was involved. I am not a big drinker, and my tolerance is so low that I pretty much have one drink and fall asleep immediately when I do indulge. But this morning I woke up headach... Read more

I like to do at least 90 minutes of exercise on Sunday, because I'm insane, and it starts the week of nicely. So today I started off with a 35 minute walk, and then I biked for 40 minutes. I was going to top this off with 20 minutes hi... Read more

My uncle Phil was only 65 when he died. He was so young. He had diabetes, and he didn't take care of himself. He ate all kinds of sweets, and he smoked like a chimney. He never did any exercise. He didn't have to die. He made those decision... Read more

My mom, my brother and I drove up to St. Louis on Friday. We went straight to the Botanical Gardens and had a nice time. Then I called a quilting friend and set up a meeting on Saturday. My dad's brother lived in St. Louis. He and my dad ha... Read more
